Classic | Out of Office Functionality


An approver in a workflow path can nominate an alternate approver for a specified period on the Out of Office Settings Screen. This will enable the alternate approver to action workflow items on behalf of the manager during the specified period. Once the period elapses, all new workflow items will automatically revert to the original manager for approval.

NextGen or Classic

The Classic version is the name given to the previous look and feel of the system. Important to note, both NextGen and Classic point to the same database. No data migration is therefore applicable.
